VPN Access with a Selkirk College Provisioned Device

  • Access through VPN means that you will connect to the Selkirk College network through our Cisco AnyConnect Client.  Once connected, you will be able to log in to the college's Novell network and access all mapped drives (i.e. H:/, S:/).
  • For security reasons, VPN access is restricted to college staff using a Selkirk college device (usually a laptop); access needs to be requested through the IT Service Desk. Once requested, IT will install the software on your laptop and you will be added to a group that allows access to specific resources on the network.
